Environmental solutions provider Veolia has launched a new web-based platform for the UK that can evaluate the complete carbon and water use of business activities.
This move follows recent YouGov research that found that 61% of C-suite executives have not set out a target to reduce their carbon emissions.
The tool, called GreenPath, is aimed at helping organisations determine their real carbon footprint and carries out biodiversity diagnoses at the scale of a physical site.

GreenPath is fully adapted to measuring impacts from energy, water and waste operations and has been developed to integrate future resource efficiency activities.
Designed to provide site-wide analyses, the tool will help businesses and public sector organisations meet their commitments for carbon reporting, covering footprint calculation and greenhouse gas reduction, potentially saving the firms thousands of pounds annually.
It will also aim to help organisations of all sizes meet their own regulatory obligations and achieve their environmental performance objectives through long-term improvement plans.
Veolia chief technology and innovation officer Richard Kirkman said: “Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is critical to help control the potentially devastating effects of climate change. Our launch of GreenPath is another example of our application of innovative technologies that can help our customers monitor and deliver real reductions in carbon footprint. This will not only boost sustainability for our customers but will also help Britain uphold its carbon commitments and drive green and sustainable alternatives.
“As one of the few blue chips that has already become Carbon Neutral in the UK, we are committed to supporting the Government’s Clean Growth Strategy for a low carbon future. If we as a nation and as a planet are to make sustainable choices, it is critical we calculate the cost of carbon on our natural world. Currently, we’re only scratching the surface with initiatives to curb carbon – to overturn the carbon shortfall in the UK carbon budget, we must think long term but act today.”
